Scarlet - Marissa Meyer

I am not sure if I will have time to finish this one today, or not! I'm sure I'll find time to read another 100 pages or so, though!


So, Book 2 really ramped up the action. Scarlet learns more about Wolf. Thorne learns more about Cinder. There's a bit of a Han Solo/Princess Leia vibe to one of their scenes that is pretty cute.


The combined fantasy/science fiction feel of this series is a lot of fun. I'm not really a science fiction fan - I've never been able to get into it, in spite of the fact that I really want to love space opera. I think that Meyer did a good job of adding science fiction elements without overpowering the fairy tale feel to her book.


Really enjoying this one!
